Manchester United keeper Edwin Van der Sar has been ruled out of Tuesday´s Champions League clash with Roma at Old Trafford with a toe injury.

The Dutchman suffered the setback during the first half of United´s 1-0 win over Birmingham at St Andrews which lifted them back into second place in the Barclays Premier League.

United boss Sir Alex Ferguson said: "Van der Sar has damaged his toe. To what extent, we are not sure. We will send him for a scan but he will definitely be out on Tuesday.
